Box 23, Local; or hourglass@ kls.usaka.smdc.army.mil.@kls.usaka.smdc.army.milBuckminster and Friends Sabrina Mumma I remember watching the show “Reality Bites” many years ago when an editor asked a prospective journalist, “What is the meaning of irony?” I mention this because something ironic happened on my latest visit to New York City. Actually, we were just on the island of Manhattan which is exactly like Kwaj except for skyscrapers, a couple hundred acres and 8 million more people. Maybe Kwaj is more like Central Park without the zoo, more water and a runway. Now here’s the ironic part; New Yorkers were nice! Kathy Ann and I lived in New York for seven years (not counting our four years in college) and we went into the city on many occasions. My vision of a typical New Yorker was a nononsense, decisive, lead, follow, or get-out-of-the-way type person. Once you are accustomed to it, it’s not abrasive or uncomfortable. You just go with the ow. On our latest trip, we were walking down a crowded New York sidewalk when someone bumped into us from behind. She turned and said, “I’m sorry,” looked apologetic and moved on. We were speechless. Later, we were at a crowded intersection and one New Yorker yelled at another New Yorker to watch out for a cab and complained that the cabbie should be more careful. Throughout our four-day stay we noticed an extremely high level of camaraderie and community spirit. We thought it was an anomaly. We had the pleasure of watching Kwaj’s own Andrea Lindborg (aka Solade) perform at a local jazz club in SoHo. We asked her if our observations were off base. She told us that the city is much more caring and compassionate since 9/11 and she agrees that people really do look out for one another. This has certainly changed my impression of New York. For the record, the de nition of irony is when the actual circumstances are the opposite of the anticipated circumstances. People who come from the island of Manhattan to the island of Kwajalein anticipate a close-knit small town community where people really do care about one another. They might anticipate that we would be quick to help and slow to criticize. I, for one, would like to avoid doing anything ironic. If I fail, encourage me to be at my best. We’ll show those New Yorkers who can really be friendly.

Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 3 3 Not what doctor ordered Antibiotics are sometimes misused,will not always cure what ails youBy Inge LeBlanc, RN, CCRNKwajalein Hospital You’re feeling lousy; perhaps you have a fever, sore throat, chills. You make an appointment to see your physician, or stop by First Stop on you way to work, sure that you will be given a prescription for a course of antibiotics. Because that’s what antibiotics are for, right? Wrong! Most adult patients who see their doctors for a sore throat receive a prescription for an antibiotic, despite the fact that antibiotic treatment may be appropriate for only 10 percent of such patients. The vast majority of sore throats are caused by viral infection, which antibiotics do not treat. Only in cases of bacterial infection –– commonly referred to as “strep throat” — can antibiotics be useful. “There are pretty well known criteria for diagnosing strep throat and predicting its incidence in a population” says Jeffrey Linder, MD, of the Massachusetts General Hospital General Medicine Division. “If you go in to see your doctor for an upper respiratory infection, including a sore throat, nine times out of 10 you should not be given an antibiotic.” While the dangers of overusing antibiotics — most signi cantly the development of antibiotic resistance in bacteria — are well known, there are many forces that could lead physicians to prescribe them inappropriately. Many patients expect antibiotics when they visit their doctor for a sore throat or even colds, which also do not improve with antibiotics. Antibiotic use also may needlessly place patients at risk for allergic reactions. “The best solution for physicians, educating their patients about the proper use of antibiotics, often is not feasible because of the time pressures many physicians face,” says Stafford, an assistant professor of medicine at the Stanford Center for Research in Disease Prevention. Efforts are already underway to educate physicians and patients about the dangers of over prescribing antibiotics. A study at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in Denver measured antibiotic prescription rates and identi ed predictors of antibiotic use for adults diagnosed as having colds, upper respiratory tract infections and bronchitis in the United States. The results showed that of ce visits for colds, upper respiratory tract infections and bronchitis resulted in approximately 12 million antibiotic prescriptions, accounting for 21 percent of all antibiotic prescriptions to adults in 1992. A total of 51 percent of patients diagnosed as having colds, 52 percent of patients diagnosed as having upper respiratory tract infections and 66 percent of patients diagnosed as having bronchitis were treated with antibiotics. Although antibiotics have little or no bene t for colds, upper respiratory tract infections or bronchitis, these conditions account for a sizable proportion of total antibiotic prescriptions for adults by of ce-based physicians in the United States. Resistant bacteria are also the result of doctors prescribing the drugs for conditions not caused by bacteria and of patients prematurely breaking off a course of antibiotic doses. A study by the University of Bristol (England) has shown that a prescription of antibiotics taken within the previous two months doubles the chances of patients carrying antibiotic resistant bacteria. The same effect was not seen in patients who had had antibiotics prescribed within the previous 12 months. So how does one treat a viral respiratory infection? A program in health clinics where physicians offer patients a cough and cold care kit containing over the counter medicines appears to signi cantly reduce unnecessary antibiotic use. Researchers from the Minnesota Antibiotic Resistance Collaborative reported their ndings at the International Conference on Emerging Infectious Diseases.“Providing cough and cold care kits does appear to be a useful tool to use with patients who have upper respiratory illness or acute bronchitis to decrease unnecessary antibiotic use,” says Pamala Gahr of the Minnesota Department of Health, a researcher on the study.The kits were initially produced by three local health plans that began distributing through their clinics during the 2000-2001 winter season. They consist of a colorful box lled with pain relievers, decongestant, cough syrup, lozenges, a packet of powdered chicken soup and a teabag. The following year, six local health plans distributed approximately 31,000 kits. Gahr and her colleagues compared the percentage of patients with upper respiratory illnesses or acute bronchitis who lled prescriptions for antibiotics after visiting clinics that distributed the kits with those that visited clinics that did not. Patients who visited clinics where the kits were distributed were signi cantly less likely to ll a prescription for antibiotics within three days of their visit. “The inappropriate use of antibiotics to treat viral illnesses is thought to be a key factor in the rise of antibiotic-resistant bacteria,” says Gahr. Upper respiratory illnesses and acute bronchitis are generally caused by viral infections and antibiotics, which only work on bacteria, are not proper treatment. Usually, the best course of action in these cases is to treat the symptoms with re st and over-thecounter medication. Similar “Cold Packs” are available 24 hours a day from the hospital. Unfortunately, they don’t include the chicken soup or the teabag.

Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass Our furry, Our furry, friendly friendly pals pals H a v i n g p e t s o n K w a j a l e i n p o s e s Having pets on Kwajalein poses u n i q u e p r o b l e m s r e q u i r e s g o o d c a r e unique problems, requires good care When asked if rats, geckos and other native island creatures can be kept as pets Schwartz said, “No. Rats can carry some nasty bacteria and getting bit by one is de nitely not a good idea. Having a gecko for a pet here is not the best idea either. We do not have the proper items that they need to be happy in a con ned environment. It is better to name the ones on the outside of the buildings and greet them at night when they come out.” Pet owners who went through all the yellow tape to get their friends out here have a few things to worry about that may not have posed a problem at home. Schwartz explained some of the concerns for cats, “There is feline immunode ciency virus in the feral cat population, while it is in the same subfamily as human HIV, it is not transmissible to us. It is usually transmitted from cat-to-cat contact, usually bite wounds. Cats that are FIV positive may or may not show clinical signs, depends on whether secondary or opportunistic infections have set in. We commonly see chronic, nonresponsive or recurrent skin infections. Upper respiratory signs are runny nose, sneezing and/or watery/goopy eyes.” Heartworms are also a concern for felines on the island. Although she said they are less commonly diagnosed, they are often fatal to cats. The clinic may not be able to treat cats if they are positive due to the fact that a high number of cats do not survive the treatment. Skin and ear infections and obesity are also things to watch out for in the feline population. Schwartz explained possible problems for canines. “Heartworms are transmitted through mosquitoes and while we have not had any heartworm cases that I know about, the mosquito that transmits the disease is reported to be present in this area of the world,” she said. She also said that one of the most common complaints on Kwaj is ear infections. Even if the animal had no problem with One of the most common problems for dogs is ear infection. A A By Elizabeth Davie ReporterAuthor Alfred A. Montapert once said, “Animals are reliable, many full of love, true in their affections, predictable in their actions, grateful and loyal. Dif cult standards for people to live up to.” This could explain why some people choose to bring their pets with them to Kwajalein. According to Jenny Schwartz, Kwajalein’s registered veterinary technician, dogs and cats are the only pets authorized to be brought to Kwaj. There are a set number of dogs and cats allowed on the island.Our furry, friendly pals 4

Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 5 H a v i n g p e t s o n K w a j a l e i n p o s e s u n i q u e p r o b l e m s r e q u i r e s g o o d c a r e Dogs need lots of exercise and monthly heartworm medication. its ears back in the states it is very important to keep a close eye on ears. “We are providing a nice warm, dark and moist environment for yeast in the dog’s ears and yeast love it. The dog will usually shake and scratch at its ears which can cause tissue damage and/or bacterial infections as well.” According to Schwartz obesity, mobility problems, lots of joint problems and heart problems are also things to be concerned with. Now that residents have been warned of the potential problems how can they be avoided? Schwartz gave suggestions for pet owners, “Keep your cat indoors. As well as being a USAKA [U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll] regulation, if the cat has no contact with infected cats – there will not be a spread of disease [FIV]. There is a vaccine that was recently approved for FIV, right now it is not recommended because once an animal is vaccinated they will test positive for FIV. We are not going to vaccinate for a disease that is preventable by keeping the cat indoors.” She also added, “Cats that are outside are also at risk for cat bite abscesses. They are smelly, nasty, very messy and expensive to treat.” Schwartz recommended all pets be on a monthly heartworm preventative. As for their ears she said, “Rinse the ears out with a rinsing solution every time after swimming. Check the ears at least twice a week and clean as needed. Ear infections can set in quickly out here, staying on top of routine care should prevent nearly all the infections. Hold the ears on top of the head to allow air to reach the ear canal.” She also said that most animals she has seen on Kwaj are overweight. “Owners need to look at what the dog/cat has access to and how much exercise it is really getting. If the animal is now a couch potato it does not need the same caloric intake as it needed when it was a superstar runner. Ease into an exercise program with your animal, cut table scraps and snacks, and look very closely at the current diet. Cats — encourage them to play with toys. Toys that are attached to a stick with string work well, and you can play with the cat while you watch a movie or TV.” Schwartz gave some nal advice for pet owners. “Do not leave feces on the ground. Clean yards daily, if not immediately. Fecal material on the ground is a y breeding ground and also if the animal was to have any internal parasites this is the perfect environment to have major concerns. Intestinal parasites pass eggs through the feces and some of the eggs can live in the soil for years. Roundworms and hookworms can be picked up and cause issues in humans, especially children.” Residents may also have sh for pets. Where do these sh come from? And is it approved to take them out of the lagoon? Cathy Madore, environmental scientist, Cats should be kept indoors to avoid spreading disease among the Kwajalein feline population. (Photo by Elizabeth Davie) said, “According to the USAKA Environmental Standards, USAKA and its residents must ensure that actions taken here will not jeopardize the continued existence of species of special concern or result in destroying or adversely changing the habitats on which they depend. Taking reef sh for use as pets is not strictly regulated unless the sh is listed as a species of concern or it’s an integral part of the habitat, food chain, etc. of one of those species. The three sh species of concern are the Napoleon (aka Humphead) Wrasse, Giant Grouper and Giant Coral (aka Blue Spot) Trout. These species play an integral part in the health and balance of our reef systems by feeding on other sh, crustaceans and more. For instance, the Napoleon Wrasse is one of the few sh species that will eat the Crown of Thorns, a known coral reef killer. The taking of small numbers of unregulated sh species for enjoyment in aquariums is allowed. However, residents should care for these animals as necessary to ensure they have a good chance of survival. And, foremost, they must understand that a delicate balance exists in our lagoon and the decimation or decline of a sh species could have incalculable effects on the coral reef.” For more information on approved pets and caring for them, call Schwartz at 52017 or Madore at 58856.

Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 Taking care By Amanda Curtis, RN and Inge LeBlanc, RN, CCRN, Kwajalein HospitalOctober is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Friday is National Mammography Day. Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in women, aside from skin cancer. This year, an estimated 211,240 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to occur among women in the United States. It is the second leading cause of cancer death, after lung cancer. An estimated 40,410 women are expected to die from breast cancer this year. Approximately 1,690 new cases of breast cancer are expected in men this year, while 460 are estimated to die from the disease. The most common risk factors are age, personal and family history. The risk of breast cancer increases as a woman grows older. Approximately 82 percent of breast cancers occur in women 50 and older. Women who have had breast cancer and women with a history of breast disease (not cancer, but a condition that may predispose them to cancer) may develop it again. The risk of getting breast cancer increases for a woman whose mother, sister, daughter or two or more close relatives have had the disease. When breast cancer is detected early and treated promptly, suffering and ultimately the loss of life can be signi cantly reduced. Women are encouraged to ask their doctors and other health care providers about mammography screening. Mam-Breast cancer second leading cause of cancer death in womenmography (an X-ray picture of the breast) is the single most effective method to detect breast changes that may be cancer, long before physical symptoms can be seen or felt. American Cancer Society recommendation that women 40 and older should have a screening mammogram every year, and should continue to do so for as long as they are in good health. Women in their 20s and 30s should have a clinical breast examination as part of a regular health exam by a health professional preferably every three years. After 40, women should have a breast exam by a health professional every year. Breast self exam is an option for women starting in their 20s. Women should report any breast changes to their health care professional right away. The American Cancer Society believes the use of mammograms, clinical breast examination and breast self-examination offers women the best opportunity for reducing the breast cancer death rate through early detection. To schedule a mammogram, contact the radiology department at 53522. They will tell you what to expect when you get a mammogram and how long the procedure will take. Women should check with their insurance company regarding costs and reimbursement. For more information about National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and National Mammography Day visit www.nbcam.org and www.cancer.org A mammography image is checked at Kwajalein Hospital. Mammography, breast examination by a physician and breast self-examination are vital to detecting breast cancer at an early and survivable stage. (File photo)
